As we get started enjoying the summer, our A/C units work harder than ever to keep us comfortable. Unfortunately, the more HVAC systems operate, the sooner they’ll be needing repair or replacement as parts get worn out from routine use. And just as the need for repairs is set to peak around mid-summer, thousands of homeowners are going to receive an unwelcomed surprise. A worldwide raw materials shortage is causing issues for the HVAC industry, and that means extended wait times for thousands across North America. If you’re wanting to repair your air conditioning system, we suggest doing so sooner rather than later. Here’s why.
Why Is There a Shortage?
We all know how hard 2020 was, and it's taken a toll on the supply chain. Several compounding factors in addition to COVID-19 have created a worldwide raw materials shortage for numerous industries, which includes HVAC manufacturers. These important material shortages will impact the accessibility of a lot of household appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators and A/C units. Production has stalled for a lot of HVAC manufacturers and stock is beginning to become depleted.
How Will the Shortage Impact You?
With less equipment in supply than previously, more than 125,000 HVAC contractors will be impacted. Smaller scale contractors who don’t have access to big supply networks could experience unpreventable problems getting necessary parts for repairs. You may be without A/C for weeks while you are waiting for parts to show up.
That’s why we strongly advise any homeowner who is thinking about replacing their HVAC unit to do it quickly to get the choice selection and price.
